Really bad mileage
 
I'm only getting around 10.5 mpg according to the onboard. What are some of the other 2nd gen owners getting with their 5.9's out there

A buddy of mine had one a few years ago. That`s about what he got.

I was afraid of that! I have to replace one of my o2 sensors, but lately the mileage seems to have gone to crap, wondering if the colder weather can be contributing as well.

That's where I'm at with my '02. It's popped up to 11.5-12 on highway only trips but that's about all to expect.

Had a '98 and an '01 5.9 and got around 8 mpg on both. The engine is simply a gas hog.

this time of year with this cold weather, mileage will drop...
